* CharacterExaggeration: Everyone, to an extent. It's probably a necessary evil, since almost two dozen main heroes and main villains wouldn't stand out from each other unless their unique traits weren't made more glaring. As well, a lot of the Destiny Odyssey storylines are meant to parallel the plot and character development of their hero's original game, so you've got to squeeze 30-40 hours of character growth into a five-stage level that will take a couple hours tops. Things are gonna be glossed over and left out.
** [[LampshadeHanging Some of the characters even go so far as to point this out,]] [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything and explain it away as a side effect of the heroes (and villians) amnesia.]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: RhymesOnADime is Shantotto's favorite trope. Yet the game has far fewer then most would hope. They need only look into the sound test. For though her win quotes are just one line. When placed together they fit just fine. [[NoblewomansLaugh Ohohoho!]]
** An example that doubles as PlayerPunch: the inclusion of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Aerith]] allowed Square to show off [[DudeNotFunny a particularly nasty sense of humor]]... and they sure as hell [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kV4K4DusEbM didn't miss the chance to pull such a cruel joke.]][[note]]Yes, Sephiroth is ''programmed'' to use Hell's Gate on Aerith whenever she uses Holy. Make of that what you will.[[/note]]
** In terms of gameplay, many accessories are very hard to acquire, requiring numerous Elixir-type items to trade for in bulk in ''Dissidia'', or being found only in Confessions of the Creator in ''Dissidia 012''. However, players figured out an easier way to acquire them was to equip them on their character, then save this build as a Friend Card and fight it to win the accessories over and over through Battlegen. That Friend Cards can be saved as zipped folders and uploaded to the internet to be shared and downloaded in ''Dissidia 012'' just made it easier, and numerous friend card downloads exist to allow the player easy access to rare and powerful items. Unfortunately, the dev team anticipated this, and most of the rare accessories you're fighting these Friend Cards to acquire have a very, very low chance to be won through Battlegen, meaning you're looking at using a build dedicated to boosting Battlegen rate, and fighting them over and over because you can't know if you won the items you wanted until you end the battle and see your spoils.

** Very rarely did they miss a change to fit in a MythologyGag, both the famous and obvious and the obscure and subtle. In ''Dissidia 012'', the world map mechanic was kept in mind for more in-jokes. Yuna begins her storyline on a beach, Cloud pursues Sephiroth into an ice-covered mountain crater for their final battle, Terra starts her story on a snowfield near a ruined castle, Confessions of the Creator starts south of Cornelia, etc.

Added DiffLines:

* FullNameBasis: In the Japanese versions, if a character has a full name, then they are referred to it in the HUD (ex. Cloud Strife, Squall Leonheart, Zidane Tribal). Overseas, only their first names are used.

* DramaticPause: Some of the characters sound like they're trying to imitate WilliamShatner and do a very, ''very'' bad job.

* LipLock: Most of the characters suffer from it to some degree at various times, but Cloud in particular has a horrible case of this, with random awkward WilliamShatner-esque pauses in the middle of half his lines (contrast with the same actor's performance in ''[[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'', where he... didn't talk... like this). The way [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PG7lvNkyPZs Kefka says one of his lines]] seems to be a parody of this trope.

* LostForever: Though it's closer to Lost And Very Hard To Get Again, in the original ''Dissidia'' Cecil, Cloud, Squall and Tidus each had a level one exclusive weapon found in their storylines. These weapons weren't available anywhere else and weren't sold in the shop. If the player made the mistake of selling them, they would later be out of luck because those weapons are needed to craft their respective exclusive weapons, which are made in sequence. For example, sell the Dark Sword from Cecil's story, you can't craft the Mythgraven Blade, and thus can't craft the Lustrous Sword, and can't craft the Cimmerian Edge[=/=]Lightbringer. If you lost them, the only way to get the weapons again was to face a low-level character in Quick Battle, reset the match until they equip it at random, then fight them over and over until they dropped it. And by the way, you read that right, Cecil has ''two'' Level 100 weapons, do even if you hung onto the Dark Sword, you're still going to need a second one. Thankfully averted in ''Dissidia 012'', where the level one exclusives are all available in the shop.

* KillEmAll: [[spoiler:The reason that ''Dissidia 012'' focuses on the new characters is that the old ones drop like flies in the main storyline, and eventually the newbies don't make it out alive either. It's a good thing DeathIsCheap in the ''Dissidia'' universe because otherwise the final stand would be a DownerEnding to rival ''CrisisCore''.]]
